Girls’ Division

Paige Paolucci (Class of 2022) of Blythewood, S.C., fired a final round score of 73 to pull off the come-from-behind victory to claim the Girls’ Division title at the Carolinas Collegiate Showcase.

“It feels great,” said Paolucci.” This was my first win in a tournament and I was really happy with how I played today because I had a bad run yesterday, so bouncing back today really meant a lot to me.”

Both courses were set up this week to test our players on similar course conditions as one might experience in a collegiate event. Paolucci’s 1-over-par, 73 was the low round of the entire event in the Girls’ Division. Her 159 total was enough for a two-shot victory over her nearest competitor.

“We’ve always talked about how much junior golf talent there is in the Carolinas and we wanted to create an event that is focused on the recruiting aspect of getting players ready for college golf,” said CGA Senior Tournament Manager, Chris Wolff. “We had a college golf setup that would be really similar to a UNC Greensboro collegiate event where we used the same tees they’d play to give our competitors a good feel for what a college event will really be like.”

Sahana Mantha (Class of 2025) of Charlotte, N.C. finished in solo second place with a 161 total. Mary Sears Brown (Class of 2021) of Wake Forest, N.C. and Caroline Johnson (Class of 2023) of Mooresville, N.C. finished tied for third place with a 163 total. Kaitlyn Rand (Class of 2022) of Raleigh, N.C. rounded out the top five in the Girls’ Division, finishing with a 166 total. Rand also made her first hole-in-one in Sunday’s final round on the par-3, 11th hole on Grandover’s West Course.

Boys’ Division

Over 140 players competed in our Boys’ Division of the Carolinas Collegiate Showcase and at the end of 36 holes, both Josh Buxbaum (Class of 2021) of Wake Forest, N.C. and Jackson Bode (Class of 2022) of Pinehurst, N.C. were crowned co-champions.

“It feels really good,” Buxbaum said. “Both courses played very hard but I played well and it was a cool experience to get my first win of the year.”

Buxbaum and Bode, who both shot a 3-under-par, 141 total, were the only two players in the field to finish under par on this challenging setup.

“The courses were in really great shape,” Bode said. “It just feels really great to get the job done finally and I’m really looking forward to future tournaments down the road.”

Michael La Sasso (Class of 2022) of Raleigh, N.C. finished the event in third place at 1-over-par, 145 total. Keenan Royalty (Class of 2023) of Raleigh, N.C., finished the event in fourth place at 2-over-par, 146. Rounding out the top five in our Boys’ Division was Nolan Hawkins of Hilton Head Island, S.C. who finished at 3-over-par, 147 total. Hawkins represented the Carolinas Team earlier this summer in the Carolinas-Virginias Junior Team Matches at the Country Club of North Carolina.

The CGA would like to extend a thank you to the members and staff of Grandover Resort, specifically to Director of Golf, Jonathan York, Director of Convention Services, Mariah Bailey and East Course Superintendent, Daniel Knight, West Course Superintendent, Jorge Nava Alcantara and Director of Course and Grounds, Russell Hill. We would also like to thank the players, coaches and spectators for their understanding and adherence to the new COVID-19 tournament protocols.
